Amended assessment criteria Research Internship due to coronavirus
Due to measures in relation to the coronavirus, many research internship projects have been adapted this year. Because of this, we wrote an addendum to the assessment criteria for research internship and thesis. These amendments provide the flexibility needed to successfully complete and assess these projects in light of this difficult year.

The practical part of the master internship is assessed on several criteria. Assessors shall not mark all criteria (not all criteria might be applicable,) and might indicate those criteria that are noticeable to provide the student with helpful information. Note that the outcome is not simply the sum of pluses and minuses.
